SALT LAKE CITY — A woman suffered serious injuries after driving a pickup truck through the median on a bridge on Bangerter Highway on Tuesday.

The truck was pulling a sign board when it veered to the left in the northbound lanes of the highway and hit the barrier, a Utah Highway Patrol spokesperson told FOX 13. After crossing the barrier, the truck slid partially down the slope that heads towards the surface street below.

Lanes in both directions of the highway were closed as crews cleaned up the accident, but have since reopened.
